What they can be good for is branding but unless you got a dirt cheap CPM price, that branding can cost you plenty! Good luck with it.

I have never *ever* visited a site or bought a product via a top banner.
I have bought products online following text links to something described in a relevant way.

I remember the good old days (prior to GoTo) when we'd design different banners for keywords search campaigns on AltaVista. back then the CTR averaged over 5% when regular banners were below 1%. The process was time consuming but well worth the effort. Thank god for GoTo and the rest of the SEs discovering text ads though.

I would never click on them to go to a site. But, then that doesnot mean that my customers would not too.
Marketing is a peculiar field-there are NO CORRECT ANSWERS AND NO WRONG ANSWERS.Its more of what experience YOU have.
Keep fingers crossed and best wishes,

Personally, like most people, I have 'banner blindness.' At one point, I found them so irritating (like the intrusive blinking ones), I spent most of the day configuring my hosts file to block them all.
Now, all I see are broken images.

Also, as a rule of thumb I found that banners that incorporated HTML functionality tended to do better than standard banners.
I continue to review banner ad placements for my clients, but I almost never find one that looks like it might be cost effective.

Good luck. As under 2% of UK searchers actually search on Lycos UK and under 1% click on banner ads - don't expect an explosion of hits or sales! Oh - and a lot of sites break out of framesets to prevent those adverts appearing on sites which both Lycos and AJ UK (to a lesser extent) attempt to do on a search term.
